I have never met an Iranian anywhere in the world. They don't seem to travel a lot outside their country.

There was a news item in today's Finnish newspapers: The number 2 Iranian diplomat in the Iranian Helsinki embassy Hossein Alizadeh has resigned from office and now considers himself a political dissident. He hasn't yet sought political asylum in Finland.

He says he doesn't want to be a diplomat for a country whose cruel regime he disapproves of. (iran is well-known in Finland for its mediaeval punishments.)

Hossein Alizadeh is the second Iranian diplomat in Europe who is known to have resigned for the above reason. An Iranian diplomat was granted political asylum in Norway last January.

Well, I hadn't much contact with iranian people. There's a girl in my school , who was born in Iran. I can just tell that she's very friendly. In germany we have people from all countries in the world. But it's seldom to see iranian people. I can just support the fact that they aren't travelling around the world. I have nothing to object against you Emotion: smile
I suppose you are just as friendly as people from other countries too.

Well we mostly travel to countries such as USA(esp. in Los angles) or Uk or Germany.
What do you know about our customs , culture?
mbm2000What do you know about our customs , culture?
Anyone who has a computer can read about any country's culture. This is what Wikipedia says about [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_Iran ]Iranian culture.[/url]

I remember reading a flattering article in Newsweek about the then Shah of Iran and his social policies. The article was entitled On the Threshold of Grandeur. The Shah was seen as a great benefactor who was about to make a modern welfare country out of Iran in the foreseeable future. There was no mention of the 2,200 political prisoners languishing in Iranian prisons. The USA supported the Shah in those days.

The Shah eventually had to flee Iran in 1979 as the result of a revolution. He spent time in various countries, including the USA, where he underwent surgery. He died in 1980 in Egypt, where President Sadat gave him a state funeral.

Cool BreezeHe hasn't yet sought political asylum in Finland.
Hossein Alizadeh is seeking asylum in Finland now. He says he has received some very aggressive e-mails owing to his resignation. "I could have sought asylum in Sweden, the USA or Canada, but I know Finland well and I can speak my mind here. If I returned to Iran, I would face capital punishment."

what i know is, i like iran too much and one day i will visit your country.
my family already went there, they like it, also the people are good, the weather is amazing.
they showed my the pictures specially in the north of your country, natural life.
I know enough about Iranian law to never set foot in your country. Irianian LGBT citizens are flogged, imprisoned and put to death for expressing or acting on their sexual orientation.

I have absolutely nothing against Iranian people from a cross-cultural standpoint, but I do not respect anyone who condones human rights violations.

But that might not be valid for the whole population. But certainly the government and the human rights are corrupt. Maybe an iranian can tell us something about it.
